Margaret Fuller was home schooled and was also educated at the Boston Lyceum for Young Ladies for about a year. She was a greedy learner and was well-known for being one of the best readers in New England. She was also the first women to have access to Harvard library. She became fluent in the classics and several different languages, In fact She was so eager to learn, that she couldn’t fit in with the girls that where her age. She was not willing to go down the traditional road that women took, so she built plans to be a journalist. Though, after the death of her father due to Cholera in 1836, she was then the one to look after her family. Also, Margaret did not benefit from her father’s money, with the all of the family fortune going to two uncles due to the fact that her father didn’t make a will. To gain some income she took a job as a teacher in Boston and short after, Rhode Island. Now in 1839, she moved the family to Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. Margaret began to have discussions with different groups on the women of today’s society. Also in 1839, she was given a job to be an editor for the Transcendentalists’ magazine. Soon she was having articles written about her, and was climbing her way up higher and higher. Then she published a book called ‘Women in the Nineteenth Century ‘based on how women could play a larger role in society. In 1844 she became the New York Tribunes’ first female editor. In 1846 she was sent to Europe to meet the leading literary figures, and the Italian revolutionary Giuseppe Mazzini. In 1848 she married Giovanni Angelo Ossoli secretly. But after the birth of their child, they were no longer a secret. She then worked as a nurse whilst her husband fought in the military. In 1850, the couple took a boat back to America. But, on July 19, 1850, the returning ship hit a sandbank. The ship was abandoned due to the massive waves and she was never seen again. She had previously written of feeling bad omens about her fate. Her last writing was lost after the crash. And after her death, She had many written biographies, which them became very popular.
Margaret always wanted to be a journalist, and was a very educated woman. However, she became a journalist when she gained
more experience editing and revising papers for different magazine and newspaper companies. She never really began writing stories until she went on a trip west one summer, and wrote her first book.
